Fundraising Quiz Night - The results are in!
We would like to thank everyone who attended our quiz night on 18 February 2021. It was a fantastic night. There were some very talented quizzers out there and it was great to see everyone.
The night started off with David Ross, the Sheffield Music Hub’s Musical Stars lead, explaining how your donations will make a difference to the young people of Sheffield in their musical journeys. Then the amazing and talented Musical Stars musicians, Annabelle, Salina and Jack played their solos. This was one of their first opportunities to play in front of an audience and they did brilliantly. This is what it’s all about!
The quiz was led by Kate, and Rhiannon did an excellent job making sure everything ran smoothly. It was very exciting and there were a number of families that could potentially win. It was neck and neck right until the last question.
Congratulations to all the winners and everyone that took part. A big thanks to you all, for the donations that enabled us to beat our fundraising target for the night.
We raised an amazing £379.00
Thank you so much to all the quizzers, David and Gillian from the Music Hub and of course our talented musicians. Discussions are taking place for another quiz in the near future. Watch this space!

The Friends and Volunteers of the Sheffield Music Hub
Help us raise £20k!
Our next and only funding raising campaign this year is the Musical Stars – Furthering Talent programme, which aims to overcome barriers that prevent children and young people from spreading their musical wings, making music more accessible to all.
The Friends and Volunteers have set a funding target of £20,000 to contribute to this vital programme. Sheffield Music Hub plan to recruit 30 children on the programme this year, who will be offered:
- a 30-minute weekly specialist 1-to-1 lesson
- free instrument hire if needed
- a place in an appropriate music group
- dedicated time for a tutor to offer guidance and support children pastorally with their musical journey
We have already agreed to fund £13,300 and secured 2 grants. A big thank you to The Church Burgesses Educational Foundation - £2,000 and Sheffield Grammar School Exhibition Foundation £2,000. But we now need your help to raise more and reach our target!
